ALL IN THE PAST – MURDER MYSTERY PLAY SCRIPTS
All in the Past is a murder mystery set in 1934 Shanghai. Vera is a White Russian expatriate turned con-artist whose latest scheme is a psychic business she runs with her landlady, Lily. She is approached by a customer with a proposition to find a woman from his past, who he believes is currently in Shanghai. Vera takes the offer but soon learns that this proposition entails more than a paycheck when the missing woman is found murdered in the home of Vera’s ex-boyfriend.
